The first ever awards for the NHS trust, the ceremony aimed to show appreciation to the staff and volunteers behind local hospitals and community centres, from trainees to ward sisters.

Nominated staff were judged on aspects from their commitment to quality care, compassion, respect and exceptional standard work.

Helen Taylor, chair of East Suffolk and North Essex NHS Foundation Trust, said: "We really value the dedication and skill of our staff and volunteers. "This event gives us the opportunity to say thank you and celebrate the brilliant work our teams do every day.

"These are the colleagues who make our trust a great place to work, a great place to train and a great place to receive care."
